Eugene Patrizio has taken the helm as the new chief executive of Memorial Medical Center in Modesto.
He prefers that people call him “Gino.”
Patrizio’s first day on the job was Monday. “Gino is a dynamic leader with a distinguished healthcare career who has long been an advocate for patient care excellence,” said Grant Davies, president of Sutter Health’s Valley Area Hospitals. Memorial is affiliated with Sutter Health of Sacramento. (The Modesto Bee)
Memorial Medical Center was awarded Platinum recognition for promoting enrollment in state organ donor registries. The award comes as part of a national campaign sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration.
The hospital, part of Northern California’s Sutter Health network of hospitals, was one of 281 hospitals recognized. There were 995 hospitals and transplant centers participating in the campaign. (Central Valley Business Journal)
When Jessica’s 7-year-old son went into an uncontrolled rage in February, punching his mother and trying to break the windows in their home, he was taken to the emergency department at Modesto’s Doctors Medical Center for an evaluation.
Rather than getting prompt treatment for his mood disorder, the boy spent four days in the ER waiting for a bed to open in a psychiatric facility far outside Stanislaus County. Only a curtain separated the boy from eight adults who had been placed on psychiatric holds. (Modesto Bee)
